as far as the big green goes yeah no worries, there
will be four of us there, well two of our mob and 2
from CAN at any rate (one of them's Hywel). though I
seem to be having difficulties with the woman who is
doling out the tickets, she seems to have 'change her
mind' about giving us tickets at the moment, so
so if people could tpost other thigns for the agenda
to this list, we'll have a better idea of the
programme before the event.
Oh yeah, and no worries about whenever you turn up
genny, we can sort somthing I'm sure :-)
